Introduction

Descriptive Writing

Three months. Three months of boredom. Three months of optimism. Three months of tennis and golf. Three months without football. You step out of the car and look up at the haven that you will be enjoying a roller coaster ride not just in the next few hours but over 9 months. The shining sun glints in the corner of your eye as you suddenly recognize a thousand and one characters from a short time before. The smell of boiling burgers and baking pies murmuring through the air, its simmering mix of oil and batter and voluptuous mix of everything designed to tempt you towards the burger stand.

The final nail biting minutes go on like hours and each pass by the opponents seems like making the time go slower. Soon, the final retribution comes in the form of a final whistle, relief pouring like out through of sieve out of a thousands souls.
